Investigation continues into Connellsville vandalism spree
The Connellsville Police Department is continuing its investigation into the rash of vandalism last week, in which about 60 vehicles had slashed tires.
Police said Wednesday charges are expected to be filed next week.
Sometime after midnight on June 23, police apprehended six individuals involved in a rash of criminal mischief incidents, in which they reportedly slashed tires on about 50 to 60 vehicles.
Police said the five adults in their 20s and one juvenile admitted to slashing the tires because they were “bored.”
Most of the damage was reported on the South Side and North End areas of the city.
Police are still waiting for estimates of the damage caused by the group to come in before they can formally file charges against the individuals.
Connellsville residents who have damage to their vehicles and haven't reported it yet are asked to call city police at 724-628-2501, ext. 110.
